Advanced content control for all your displays

Controlling all of your screens has never been easier. Viz Multiplay offers a single interface for managing graphics, video and stills on every display.

Easy video wall control

Live productions are becoming more complex, with multiple screens in the studio, to give presenters more storytelling options. Viz Multiplay gives media companies a simple way to control studio screen content from a single interface. It is easy-to-use and flexible enough to allow content to be distributed to multiple screens with different configurations.

Multi-screen control

Viz Multiplay controls a variable number of screens from a single interface. Screens can be different resolutions and aspect ratios for creative freedom of studio configuration. You can control individual screens or trigger content to multiple screens from one single touch or click.

Viz Multiplay comes with a powerful design tool to create unique video wall configurations easily. These configurations become presets, allowing the positioning of content in the video wall to be changed live with animated effects.

Playlist of content

Selecting content and building a playlist is very simple with tools to browse media including clips from , Vizrt’s media management system, graphic animations, and images. Newsroom journalists can also define content for Viz Multiplay using Viz Pilot in their native newsroom control system (NRCS). Journalists define the channel on which the content will be triggered and the configuration: single item trigger or multiple item trigger. The playlist is reflected in the Viz Multiplay interface in the control room.

 

Control room operation

In the control room, Viz Multiplay operates as a standalone control system or integrated with Vizrt’s playlist control systems. The Viz Multiplay playlist appears as a series of thumbnails depicting the content of each media item. The operator either triggers the playlist as it was created in the rundown or makes on-the-fly rearrangements of the content. For clips, a countdown is given displaying time remaining.

Flexibility of output

Viz Multiplay sends content to Viz Engine, Vizrt’s real-time composition system. Viz Engine displays the content in real-time as a SDI, DVI or IP stream for maximum flexibility output options. Viz Engine easily controls live video inputs, clips, graphics and still images. Viz Multiplay is configured to control a single Viz Engine or multiple Viz Engines, in both single and dual channel configurations and spanning across multiple graphic channels.

Workflow

Playlists of content can be transferred dynamically from the newsroom or created locally by the Viz Multiplay operator. From the Viz Multiplay user interface, the content for each output device can be previewed and played out, either individually or collectively. For larger screens, Viz Multiplay also allows the layout of the screen, which can be dynamically switched according to the needs of the programme, so you can have one source spanning the entire screen, or multiple sources on the screen at once.
